John Browning Patent 580923

| History, John Browning | August 24, 2011

This was the first semi-automatic pistol that John Browning designed. It used a .38 caliber round with a single stack magazine. That remained the standard magazine design until the John Browning Designed Hi-Power (Patent 1618510), which used a double stack magazine. He was granted US Patent 580923 for this design on April 20th, 1897. Browning had applied for this Patent almost two years earlier, on September 14th, 1895. Patent 580923 was sold to Colt, but Colt never manufactured this particular design.

John Browning Patent 577281

| History, John Browning | August 23, 2011

Again like the two previous John Browning Patents, this one involved a pump action 12 gauge shotgun design. Winchester owned the rights to this design, but never manufactured it. John Moses Browning was granted US Patent 577281 for this design on February 16th, 1897. It had been applied for on March 16th, 1896.

Even though there is not a lot of information available on this patent, it appears from reading the patent description that it provided a safety design preventing the premature opening of the bolt between the time the trigger is engaged and the time the round is expelled.

John Browning Patent 552864

| History, John Browning | August 23, 2011

Like the previous Patent, this was a pump action 12 gauge shotgun design. Another shared feature between this patent and the previous is that they were purchased by Winchester, but never reached production. This design of John Moses Browning’s was granted US Patent 552864 on January 7th, 1896. It was applied for just over a year prior, on November 19th, 1894.

John Browning US Patent 549345 Winchester Model 1895

This patent would become the Winchester Model 1895.

The Model 1895 was another one of John Moses Browning’s lever action repeating rifle designs. This particular one had a non detachable box magazine.

This design is absolutely beautiful and was offered in numerous calibers, including:
– .30-40 Krag (30 Army / 30 U.S.)
– .38-72 & .40-72 & .35 & .405 W.C.F.
– .303 British
– 7.62 Russian
– .30-03 & .30-06 Springfield

The Model 1895 is one of my favorite lever action designs.

It would also be the final John Browning design that Winchester produced.

This design was granted US Patent 549345 on November 5th, 1895. John Browning had applied for this patent on November 19th, 1894.
